In the News As none other I know how problematic it is to discuss matters related to politics on the web. However, every now and then, there's no way around it, and this is one of those moments. There's this thing going on at airports in the US, and while many will see it as a separate issue, the body scanner issue, and the sad stories it has spawned, are symptoms of a far larger problem that is a direct threat to everything we've fought for during and since the Enlightenment.

...The people who USE guns in BAD way don't bother to get licensed, don't purchase them from licensed dealers and don't bother going for the carry concealed training, etc.

Gun laws tend to punish the responsible gun owners while the illegal users go on getting weapons and ammunition illegally and using them in crimes.

Terrorists will find ways to bypass security if they really want it and know what they are doing.

And lobbyists... ugh. Don't get me started. If, God-forbid, another plane is blown out of the sky by a terrorist or some nut job, I hope the gov't rethinks the current policies.
